Kevin Costner and Cindy Silva: $80 million

Kevin Costner was an all-American guy when he met Cindy Silva in 1975, while the two were studying at California State University, Fullerton. Upon graduating three years later, they married and honeymooned in Puerto Vallarta. On their plane ride back, a chance meeting with fellow passenger Richard Burton changed Costner's life forever. "I told him, 'I was hoping to become an actor, and, well, you're a celebrated actor, but you're a brawler, you've had a lot of marriages, a lot of things... I just want to know, does that kind of life follow an actor? I want to have a life that's not filled with drama," Costner recalled to Roger Ebert of his discussion with Elizabeth Taylor's notorious ex. Costner credits Burton with influencing his decision to become an actor, a move that appears to have had a negative effect on his marriage to Silva. According to reports, as Costner's career heated up, things between the two cooled down, and the couple's 16-year marriage crumbled in 1994. Although they settled their divorce privately, rumor has it Silva walked away with about $80 million. (AP Photo/Matt Sayles)
